**Free Fall Formula**

Free fall as the term says, is a body falling freely because of the gravitational pull of our earth.

Imagine a body is falling freely for time **t** seconds, with velocity **v,** from a height **h,** due to gravity **g**.

**Free Fall Formulas** are three in number and are articulated as

Free fall is autonomous of the body’s mass. It only depends on height and the time period for which body is flung.

**Free fall Problems Solved Examples**

Underneath are given questions on free fall which may be useful for you.

**Problem 1: **Compute the height of the body if it is has a mass of 2 Kg and touches the ground after 5 seconds?

**Answer:**

Given: Height h = ?

Time t = 5s

We all are acquainted with the fact that free fall is independent of mass.

**Problem 2: **The cotton falls after 3 s and iron falls after 5 s. Which is moving with higher velocity?

**Answer:**

The Velocity in free fall is autonomous of mass.

V (Velocity of iron) = gt = 9.8 m/s^{2} × 5s = 49 m/s

V (Velocity of cotton) = gt = 9.8 m/s^{2} × 3s = 29.4 m/s.

The Velocity of iron is more than cotton.
